    How to enhance your website so it works harder for you: a workshop with Atomic Smash Group Created with Sketch.



    Watershed, 1 Canons Road, Harbourside, BS1 5TX

    BCI Workshop

    Your website is the central hub for your lead generation, customer experience, sales, marketing, eCommerce, fundraising or onboarding activities to revolve around. And with the right strategic roadmap in place, your website can be continuously improved and evolved so that it brings more and more value to your organisation. But if digital strategy and website evolution is neglected, this will block growth.

    Join the Atomic Smash team for this workshop, where you’ll look at how website optimisation and evolution helps organisations within the creative industries to get the most value out of their digital platforms.
